Metallic glue for ambient environments making strides
Advancements in nanoscience are making it possible to metallically glue two solids together at room temperature in air, and under a small amount of mechanical pressure. Metallic glues can serve as excellent conductors for heat dissipation and electrical current in electronic devices, as leak-resistant seals for vacuum environments. The potential market for these applications is extensive and growing rapidly.
